Well........Damn it I am jealous.......I Hope you enjoy the 224x and Nurse it safely through the dark reverb straits ahead.....I very much doubt apart from Quantec, Bricasti & the PCM96/92.... That we will ever see another Hardware Reverb - Especially from Eventide or Lexicon again! ("Read Harmon")
Though Digitech's stuff will fly out the door...that Lexicon Reverb flavour we all know, love, crave, wan't & desire to add to a mix, more so need as a mixing tool just isn't going to go Hardware retrograde in any fashion after the PCM96 Firewire trouble and then subsequent Plug In's!
Here's where I think it's getting really interesting: So many people whom were hard core ITB mixers coming back to a Console & outboard Reverb Included. The small Boutique OEM's of Microphones, Eq's, Comp/Lim's & Reverb Plus 500 series racks have brought a new dimension and are having a decent impact. Plug In's like the PCM Lexicon Bundle & Re-vibe LX480 might well appease many for a while though after 4 years for a handful of Algo's - that is a very long path (Inclusive $300 odd Buck 3 year wait of the upgrade path).
So......I can only say - "Hang on to Those Hardware Reverbs & buy 2 of Everything!"
